This Chick-fil-A Employee That Went Above and Beyond to Help Disabled Customer Will Blow Your Mind

Published

What is it about Chick-fil-A? Their food is fantastic, sure, but what keeps them in the headlines time after time are the acts of kindness their employees seem to commit as if it’s part of the job description.

I mean, when is the last time you heard about a fast food burger spot giving exclusive use of their dining room, along with plenty of free food, to first responders and linemen after a devastating hurricane? Or offering shelter to a woman moments away from giving birth, and then blessing her family with free food for life?

Being classy seems to be par for the course for Chick-fil-A and its smiling employees, and Ashley Guzman of the La Palmera Mall location in Texas is certainly no exception.

According to local news outlet KIII, Guzman was halfway through her shift on a day like any other. “I came in. It was a normal day at work,” the 19-year-old recalled. “It was the end of our lunch rush.”

As she was working, she noticed Arturo Ramirez, one of the restaurant’s regulars, come up to be served.

Guzman shared with KIII that it’s not unusual for a server at Chick-Fil-A to help Ramirez, who is disabled, get around the restaurant and find a seat.

That day, however, Guzman took her service a step beyond. “…We help him around and get his food,” she said, “but that day I helped him. I got him his food and I went around and I sat with him.”

Guzman didn’t expect anything to come of the simple act of accompanying Ramirez, who almost exclusively spends his visits to Chick-Fil-A alone, but her kindness caught the eye of Jessica Gomez, who snapped a photo of the touching moment and shared it on Facebook.

While eating at the mall with my family I saw this lovely girl help this man out. I've seen this man several times here…

“I’ve seen this man several times here by himself,” Gomez wrote in her post. “The times I’ve been here everyone just leaves him. She cut his food into pieces and went back several times to get him whatever he needed. May God bless this woman.”

Although the incredible photo of her sweet care of Ramirez has now gone Viral, Guzman says she certainly wasn’t doing it for the attention. “I was really surprised when I saw it and I didn’t know what to think at first, and I was really nervous because all these people were seeing it,” Guzman said of the Facebook post. “And you know, out of everybody, like, like why was it me?”

“It’s called an intentional act of kindness,” Chick-fil-A Operations Director Melissa Tamez said, noting that the restaurant’s staff are encouraged to find any way they can to be a blessing to their customers and their community.

“It tells us a lot about her. She has a really good heart,” Tamez continued, noting that Guzman is a shining example of the Chick-fil-A culture. “She loves to come to work every day.”

“It makes me feel good that I can have a connection with somebody and make their day a little bit better, or give them some positivity, because you don’t know what people are going through,” Guzman shared with KIII.

Truly, Guzman’s example is a great one for any of us to follow. Be on the lookout for ways you can be a blessing to someone today!

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.

Total Strangers Gather to Celebrate Life of Korean War Vet on Memorial Day Weekend

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
